Government centers must incorporate thoughtful design in order to support the communities they serve. Whether these are new buildings or enhancements to existing buildings, energy efficiency, sustainable building principles and efficient use of space is key to a great design. Through the use of needs assessment interviews and workshops, as well as public visioning sessions, we strive to reflect the community’s image as well as address their needs now and in years to come.Learn More
Public safety buildings bring a unique set of challenges around the functions that they support. These buildings typically include a public-facing side that is accessible to the general public, then there is the “working” side that supports building operations. This balance of function and form takes experienced designers to create a building that is efficient, safe, and supports the community’s needs. Additionally, site accessibility and traffic flow is especially important when accommodating both the operational and community aspects of these buildings. Galloway’s architecture and engineering knowledge bring high value to the design of both the building and the site for public safety buildings.Learn More
The multi-use nature of public works buildings requires effective planning and a strong commitment to understanding and integrating the community’s needs. Communities are also looking for long-lasting, durable, affordable construction options, and Galloway offers exceptional knowledge in affordable, sustainable solutions.Learn More
